Our Binding Love: My Gentle Tyrant


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

She was transmigrated into a novel where she became the cannon fodder who abused the male lead and ultimately suffered her demise under said male lead. And to return back home, she had to obtain the city boundary map first.

Ye Mu doesn’t want to play a game! Now that she’s inside the book with such a plot, the only way around her death is to kill the male lead first and let this world collapse!

However, upon seeing a scraggly, skinny little boy whose brows were full of perseverance, her hand won’t move…

Well then, she would subdue the male lead’s tyrannical tendencies! How to do it? Raise the male lead and have him help her find the city boundary map? That’s a good idea!

Despite raising him properly, the male lead seems to have grown into a devious man who won’t listen to her. Moreover, he lures her over with the city boundary map.

“Do you want this or not? Then come to my bed.”

Her face was full of tears. Where was the promised honest and upstanding monarch? Does she have to raise him all over again?

The man smiles and pats her on the head, “Come on, stop crying. Wash and go to bed.”

idk why the FL is always saving babies/unborn babies, like sweetie... just let them die. they’re babies aka demon spawn. other than that, this story is much better, shorter, and less confusing version of distinguished cute master

I love the development of this novel. It's very well pace in regards to romance and plot.

I am mainly writing this to clear up some things:

    1. The chapters are split up so it may seem like a lot of chapter = lot of progress but no, so don't be quick to judge.
    1. Plot is not that repetitive from where I've read to. At the MC circumstances, she does not hold any power. Given that everyone around her either is a noble status or know martial arts. She can only... more>> do so much. Someone coming to save her is the only option.
    1. MY thoughts on the father:

      I feel an enormous amount of pity for the father. Although he did kill many innocent people and used others just for resources, at the end of the day, he recognized his fault for being greedy and driven mad for the boundary map. When he achieved his goal, he realized all the things he did to get to the point did not make him feel satisfied. He learned to love, feel guilt, remorse, and all kinds of emotions towards the MC and really had a huge character development. The father felt human emotions for the very first time in his life. Of course he deserves to die for all his crimes but I can't truly hate him by how the author wrote this novel. The author did well bringing the father general and the MC relationship as ripe as it could be making me utterly sob when he died.

    2. Also why the father is crazy and a blood-killer general is bc:

      he practice some evil martial arts that has negative side effects. Such as being extremely uncomfortable "needle like pain, " ill-tempered, short amount of patience and even being oddly blood-thirsty at random times. So in other words, killing people and see blood shed calms/stabilizes the heart. THE REASON WHY the general taught this to MC forcefully is to protect her life. BC this method is the easiest way to become strong.

The author is very good at making plot twists and creating scenes to upsur many emotions in the readers. 5/5 <<less

I'm writing this review with 0 spoilers. I intend to write another review again, and that other review will come together with spoilers.

Firstly I want to clarify that the English translations are done in parts, so altho its "chapter 76" for English translations, in truth the Chinese chapter is actually at chapter 38. Yea. In short, theres basically 494 parts for the English translation to complete and that's a lot.

Also I realise some of u state that it's 76 chapters in and the story is slow because the MC and... more>> ML are still 6 and 9 years old respectively, actually that's incorrect you're only at 76 parts (eng translation), in truth you're at chapter 38 according to the raw Chinese novel. So of course they're still this young.

Anyways, I want to talk about how this is an AMAZING story, really.

The MC is definitely not Mary Sue. She earns her right to stand on the same ground as ML, I like how they both try to protect each other and they are both competent enough. At the same time, this story doesn't make it so unrealistic that's its unbelievable how op the main characters are. Nah, it does make sense why both MC and ML can be quick thinking on their feet, if you consider their background and the kind of experiences they've gone through, that it does make sense.

Also there's really cute fluffy romance OMG >< like oh man it's soooo cute but these chapters start arnd Ch107 in the Chinese raws, so that's like part 214 for the Eng translations, and we're currently super far from it in the eng translations. Anyways, I plan to write spoiler chapters (like only those with the cute romance) in English for others to read, so u guys know what I mean lol but it's spoilers alert so read only if u want spoilers. I'll prob post it on my website soon and I'll send the link for anyone who wants to read it yea <<less

Now I will give this one a 5 star mainly because I love how it progressed and all turned out very well.

  1. ML
His character Mo Linyuan was a very sweet child who grew up to be very mischievous but all along still devoted.

... more>>

He became the emperor indeed just as our MC wanted and he did get the map which MC needed to go back to her previous world to save her father. But then, just as you can imagine he didn't want her to leave but respected her decision. He even suggested the idea for her to stay for 100 years then go back to her world which our MC didn't even think of. (Like seriously?*)

He also married her and stayed true to his promise. He never let anyone in his harem, never had any concubines and such even though his subjects want him to. For the sake of the kingdom, you know heirs.

After MC died, yes died because of poison, he kept her body and believed that she will go back after he fulfills his destiny. He became a bit of well out of it after MC died.

In the end, she came back in the middle of war I guess. And he solved everything the had many children and certainly lived until old.


2. MC

She is a brave MC just saying.


Unlike the other MC thus far, she fought alongside our ML and even make some several plans for some of their fights.

Although she hesitated to accept our ML's proposal because she was worried about what he would feel afterward. She wasn't able to let go of him though. Eventually, they got married but she died.

Her soul went back to her world and was able to save her father got this permission to live in our ML's world and be happy. It was a touching moment then she went back.

After everything was resolved, they had kids and lived till old.


I was impressed with our couple's devotion to each other and their strength to live after every trouble after another. Great story. Tearjerking one too. <<less

Well, overall the storyline is worthwhile. Each chapters are short but concise which don't make you feel burdensome to read it.

Talking about the story, the MC and ML are cute together and they complete each other. This story give me some mix feelings to it.

The raws are not so hard to read so anyone can give it a try with google translate.

A reaaaaally good story! I like how almost all of the characters were written very well. Everyone had their own complex personality and emotions, and no one is truly completely evil or good. I love the dynamics of the main couple and how their relationship developed throughout the story, making me wish to have a kind of love like theirs, too.

There were a quite some scenes which made me cry my heart out like

... more>>

the scene where her dad in the novel (Ye Li) gave all his power and life for the MC as his final act of kindness. Even though Ye Li was an evil bastard who has done a lot of bad things, I couldn't wish for his death because I know how he sincerely loves Ye Mu (MC) as his daughter and how he wished that in the end he shouldn't have been greedy and could have been a great father for her and watch her grow up.

Also, when Min Wenjun (Silent Buddhist Master) sacrificed his vitality to fix the negative energy within the MC and to allow them to spare his mother. Ahhhh he was such a great second male lead that I felt so bad for him since he couldn't be with MC no matter what : (

Lastly, the farewell between MC and her real father. It was quite bittersweet as her father did love her very much. Sad to say that the MC has to die in the present time to go back to the past and be with the ML


And of course, I love how the story started, developed, and ended. All the major characters had a connection in some ways to one another which I looooove. Also, the story did explain how the story in the book that the MC read and her experience in the past era were quite different but at the same time had similar outcomes in its events.


Turns out the book that she read in the start of the story was written by none other than... her first child with ML lololol Their son wanted to spite the ML for stealing his mother that he wrote a biography about the ML's life but without the MC in the story so his dad would die alone in the book lololol


Highly recommended! 10/10! <<less

I feel bad for saying this, but around 40 chapters I got bored. There´s been too many transmigration stories like this where MC has to work hard to gain ML´s favour in order to not be killed, to the point where they have all become a mush in my head. And all characters are typically drawn from a template, I can hardly differentiate them from one novel to the other.

It´s not bad if you haven´t been exposed to too many of these type of stories.

I started this reading the english translations, do note that they do not reflect the original chapters--they are half the original. So 70 in eng is around 30 in the Chinese chapters, hence why the build up is slow.

BUT. I guarantee this story is worth the read. Just finished it and absolutely love it! Now this is what I call a love story. Our female isn't a flower vase, all talk, no bite. Oh no, she has to be one of my favrouties in all these type of reincarnation and... more>> transmigration stories I've read. And lest not get started on the male, now that's what I call a real man. There is an actual plot in this novel too, apart from their love story. SO MUCH FLUFF.

Don't be fooled by that though, along with the fluff comes along cruel murder, and betrayal. Gosh, I even cried when one of the villaneous characters died, that was how good the portrayal of emotions depicted.

I would wholeheartedly read this all over again, recommend if you >>

    • Enjoy plots regarding military strategy, tricks, outsmarting your opponent and the like.
    • ACTUAL romance, not the kind where its instant love, no the kind where two human beings come to trust and believe in each other.
    • Smart female lead. Cute but not an airhead.
    • Respectful male lead, still has that possessive streak tho ;)
    • Growth of characters, even side ones. Redemption of some villaneous ones too.
    • Building of friendships.
There are also some side characters you may ship our girl with, but it's not like those where they non-sensically fall for the girl immediately.

One thing to note for, is the several time skips that occur, usually like months later/ years later.



GUYS, come one? You cant expect to fall for the person who made you miserable in the first place right? He's a prince, who had escaped to her country and the original character (before our girl came into her body) took an interest in him, killed his guards and took him as a s*ave. She also abused him and then sent him to a paedophile for punishment. (Don't worry, our girl comes in the nick of time)

Yeah, so don't expect it all sunshine in the start.

The story is interesting especially how the MC is hesistating whether she will kill the ML or not, which shows that she is a person with conscience and moral.

I really like this kind of story. Absolutely looking forward on this novel.

I am glad I picked this novel to read. Honestly it is the type of novel for which you would come back again and again and can't wait for the next release.

MC is so cute and honestly with the ongoing you would fell in love with her just like the ML. She is such a little sweetheart who could go at all lengths to save the ML

And talking about ML well he was initially suspicious about her but with change of time he became extremely loyal to her.

Really looking forward... more>> to the day ML becomes a two faced black belly. <<less

❤️❤️❤️ THIS IS A GEM ❤️❤️❤️

Gonna say that I truly ship the FL and ML.

Although some characters are being forgotten but love the story.

My only hope is that whoever gonna translate the novel they can reach the end.

Waiting for the next chapter. Well done translator team.

*one thing seems illogical is that most of the main leads are very young in age. But then this is a novel right, you can make any stories.

I like the story. Characters are quite deep in comparison with many other novels and the plot is interesting, translations are of great quality too. The only thing that bothers me a bit is how grown-up the main lead is: though the story starts with him being 9 years old he behaves as if he's an adult.

Still, somehow this OP-ness seems ok. He's certainly cool.

Hm, and also the romance is VERY SLOW.

Still, imo, a very-very good novel so far!

I like the relationship between FL and ML gradually grow. First I'm a little bit pessimist. Maybe thjs novel will end like other transmigration novel. Fortunately till. Now its not.

The FL is not mary sue. She knows her limit and try to fight her best. The ML too trying his best in his limited age to figh againts his enemies. They trust each other and it makes them powerfull.

The only illogical thing is how mature and smart the boy to govern a country though the author keep is safe by... more>> having advisors. But still. Illogical.

But this novel is good to read. Better than most for know. Especially bacause ths love not just suddenly happen and the ML became yandere. Let the love and trust grow. <<less

The plot keeps you interested till the very end (chapter 103, not fully translated).

The only reason I gave 4 starts is due to the fact that the plot is kinda repetitive, ... more>>

as in the MC is in danger the ML saves her like so many times.


But regardless of the faults, the story is rather interesting. Especially if you like military and fighting for the imperial throne type stories, you should give this one a go ^^ <<less

I'm only on chapter 66 but I can already tell that this is gonna be one hell of a ride.

First of all, this is definitely a slowburn novel. The pacing is slow but the rewards makes it worth it. The characters are all being developed relatively well and their interactions with each other makes the characters more dynamic.

Second, this one has an actual plot!!! Admittedly the storyline is nothing new, its a tried and tested formula but most of the light novels I've read mostly consists of passive characters that... more>> don't actually move the plot but this one does!! It might sound ridiculous but a character moving the plot is something I rarely see in a light novel so this is a real treat for me.

Another is that the main characters are all likeable and have an actual personality!! MC is not OP just because of her life experiences as a soldier in her past life, she actually develops, slowly getting stronger. ML's loyalty to MC is cute af and his lowkey yandere ways are also endearing.

Overall really enjoyed this novel!! Will review again after reading more chapters!! <<less

4 star for the moment.

It is a very easy read, the translation runs smoothly even if the chapters feel short.

One drawback is the initial age of the characters, 70 chapters and they are still little children of 6 and 9 years. When I read it I pretend they are older as they act as adult and there is a limit to my disbelief suspension.

... more>> The interactions between the leads are cute and progress quite fast in building their relationships.

I hope that in the next chapters the leads will grow so the story will become more interesting as for now, they spend all their time inside the MC's house <<less
